DENVER, Oct. 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Seed & Smith, Colorado's leading cultivator, concentrate manufacturer and dispensary dedicated to producing high-quality cannabis, announced today its partnership with cannabis hotline Leaf411. The free hotline is staffed by cannabis-trained registered nurses providing education and directional support to the general public about the safe use of legal cannabis. Seed & Smith is a Founding Member of the nonprofit organization starting this month.
Seed & Smith's latest medical partnership aligns with its corporate mission of complete transparency, education and patient care. Leaf411's consulting nurses undergo a rigorous screening process and are trained extensively on cannabis use and the endocannabinoid system. Seed & Smith will display Leaf411 signage in retail locations, and dispensary budtenders will be able to direct all medical questions relating to cannabis use to Leaf411 nurses.
"A crucial component of advancing the legal cannabis industry is educating our customers about safe and responsible consumption," said Brooks Lustig, CEO of Seed & Smith. "There are still relatively inconsistent resources about cannabis use on the internet, and most doctors are untrained in the field of cannabis usage. Leaf411 is providing an important and accessible resource to consumers interested in engaging with the cannabis market. We're proud to partner with an outstanding advocate for patient health."
"Leaf411 was started because the founders noticed a lack of balanced, transparent and accurate educational resources related to cannabis use," said Jennifer Axcell, COO and Co-Founder of Leaf411. "For new customers, navigating the industry can feel like learning a new language, and our trained nurses are equipped to help all consumers make informed decisions about their medical and recreational use. Our team is grateful to partner with Seed & Smith and the opportunity they have provided us to reach even more cannabis users across the state."
Leaf411 is not an emergency hotline. Consumers experiencing a cannabis-related medical emergency are advised to dial 911 or go to the nearest hospital.
